What are the pros? Flavor, crunch, hardiness
What are the cons? Nothing
What an obliging plant! Really delicious and crunchy, easy to grow, and it lets your stomach know that it’s real, substantial food, not the nutrient-poor “blah” stuff we’re used to eating from the grocery store. Harvest younger outer leaves first, take the hearts later, but before the heads begin to bolt. Grew like stink in semi-shade in front of the snow pea trellis despite cold spring and ungodly hot summer. Forming seeds now. I plan to collect some seed and also see if it self-seeds and comes back on its own next spring. Yummy!
